GEORGIA WiE E K L Y OJPMlNIIliOiN THE WEEKLY OPINION. THE CITY. Ficm The Daily Onxiox ot Monday. J AnnK*TPD.—Joe. Brown (colored) wa» arrested title evening by tlio military for threatening colored voters for voting the Gonlon ticket, Thk Electiox To-Day.—The morning wj» dark ami cloudy, with rain falling oc casionally In heavy showers* Yet by seven o'clock, the hour for opening the polls, not less than a thousand whites and blacks had assembled within and around the Court House. When the polls were opened general rush was uiado lor tho different doors where the tickets were received. Then began tho usual excited electioneer ing by both political parties, and each seemed determined to out do the other in tho way of securing votes. Tho most of the work seemed to be expended upon the colored men, some of wlioui seemed to stand the pressure and vote as they had intended when they left their homes. The Radical tickets wero printed upon blue paper, with an engravlngofa rail road train on the hack, the train running upward on the ticket. The Democratic tickets were white, yellow, red and n dark blue, with the train on the hack, tho locomotive heading downward. The Rad icals kept n sharp lookout for tho dark blue tickets, and were quite active In rush ing around to sec that none of them Were voted by the Intelligent colored sovereigns. The negroes were all excitement, and en gaged In expounding tho new Constitu tion ns valuably, If not as intelligently, us so many Webster* might have done. Home rather rich scenes occurred. One negro came In. elbowing hb way through tho crowd, saying he wanted to vote. “ Have you a ticket," asked a young gentleman with h roll of blue tickets In his iiatid. Just at this moment another young man approached the colored man, and asked him to take a white tickets— “O, lyes,” said the shade, 1 * 111 take It nod will remember you when 1 see you again." Another negro cried out: ‘•Gib me de Express ticket; 1 goes on dat train." " 1 can't ride on dat Bullock concern. It's too near busted; I goes on de Gordon wagon." said another. Every white man had some especial ne gro to electioneer, and every negro seemed to have some sable brother under bis charge. Many of the uninitiated were constantly searching for some new Information, yet asking the same questions over and over— all showing that desire to have those whom they have been wont to regard as their su periors to be familiar with them. •‘ Golly," said one ancient shade, u deso big folks do come down to us now. After de election dey won’t .-peak to us common niggers." White men of every class and party seemed to think it a duty to be iu close caucus with the negro, and did not shrink from imploring ids vote; the candidates were partietihuly so. We overheard one candidate in conver sation with a colored man. when something like the lollowlng conversation ensued: “llow arc gou going to vote?" “I’ll vote as Mars .Songo does," replied the negro. “Then you will vote against your race." Jald the candidate. *•1 don’t euro if 1 do." replied the negro, ‘•1 am free and will vote as 1 please*" a Wh»t l- your name?" was the next question. The darkey gave ir. What tho mative was for asking tiie negro for his name we do not know. -You got ills face on your ticket ?" asked one negro of another, at the same time showing a photograph of Col. Bullock. “Go way wid dat huv," said tho other, • liar's too much iielly for do face." A colored man named Aaron Dobha pro claimed publicly that lie had been paid three weeks ago to work for Col. Bullock and the Radical ticket, and that he then had the money III his pocket. Tills state ment he repented three or four times. In a very loud tone, and iu the hearing of at Jpast twenty person*. Although the whole Hall III the lower story of the Court House was crowded, and some live or six hundred whites and blacks on the outside, yet the utmost good order prevailed. From Thk Dailt on*ion of Tuesday.] Tun .Jm-KKSOX UoL'XTV Prison**•*— We this morning visited the gentlemen • who arc now confined In the calaboose by order of the Military authorities.

AT Joe Brown, tho colored politician, who was Incarcerated In the city ptlson, yesterday, i.y order of the Military, for threatening and attempting to Intimidate freed men lor voting the Gordon ticket. Is still held iu confinement, lie has proba bly found out by this time that other darkles arc as free ns he, and that they have the same right to vote for Gordon that he has for Bullock. The action of Gen. Monde in this matter is but an addi tional evidence that hej* taking no part In the partizan strife, hut that lie seeks merely to discharge Ids duty, as a conscientious and sworn otlicer of the Government. urn Tux Daily Upikiom of Wednesday.] Attkmpteo Stamiino.—Monday night* brakemnn on the Western and Atlantic Railroad, named Thomas Brady, broke in to the house of Ko.«u Thoiimoii. a ttymph du pa re, who resides in the jungles on Mariet ta street, known as Brooklyn. Yesterday Rose swore out n warrant and bad the midnight prowler arrested, and was hound over by tlio Mayor to the Superior Court. Sut hJlcd. Rose started for her den, and when near there, some female friend called to her to “run," n* Brady was behind her, and would kill her. Looking round, she discovered him hut a few yard* lieliiud Iter with kiilfo drawn, evidently intending to murder her. Affrighted, she run down ii|m>11 the railroad track, lie i**r*uiiig her, nut fortunately was met by olllcer Jack Smith, who cheeked lihu in Ills wild career. Ho iiltempteif resistance to the olllcer, who applied Ids ~i*vi>ii;tdt-r” gently once or twice, which had such a sootliing effect that lie went to the calaboose In a spring- wagon. This morning he was released from cus tody about six o’clock, and shortly uftcr- wanls nn ottb-cr appeared with a warrant, hut he hud flown. He might just as well conic lu, for the olllcer* arc after him. Wiikkk’s that Laxd and Mclk?—Quite it number of colored men have been making Inquiries upon the street for the office ot* the man who was to give them the laml and the mules if they would vote tho Radical ticket. This may not be what would legally Ik? called corruption or tho sacred Ballot Box, but It looks to us ilko something very nearly akin to it. When political parties are reduced to such straiu in this. It seems to us that lc would lie much better for their reputation as a party, that they close out and bo hon orably defeated. If a |K>lltlc*l party uses corrupt mean* te secure the office* of a State, they will most certainly use tbe of fices til the same way, little earing how much the State may suffer. Tbe man who will report to lo«v and unlawful means to get position, u ill prostitute that position to low* and unlawful uses. Well may tho people leur the success of the Radical party.

The entraiico Is at the side door, where the pood* were taken out upon (tie street and loaded upon a dray. They succeeded In getting boxea of tobacco of the best brands.

L. J. Gartrcll and Geo. Hammond, Esq, both of this city. The difllculty, we understand, originated lit sorao words which wero passed between Get). Gartrcll and Judge Hammond (the father of one of the combatants) yesterday. As there were no deadly weapons used, it Is thought that neither party U seriously Injured. Cot.. Townsend axi> thk Klkction at Marietta.—Wc were pleased to he inform ed by a gentleman from Marietta, that tor tho fairness and good order of the election In Cobb county, they arc indebted to Brevet Lieut. Col. Townsend, who Is temporarily In command at Marietta. This we knew would be tho result when we learned that this officer had bcon assigned to that post. Col. Townsend graduated at West Point lu 1850, and after two years* service In the Third Artillery, resigned Ills com mission and entered upon the practice of law lu Detroit, Michigan. When the war began, he tendered his services to the gov- inent and was appointed a Captain and as signed to the 10th Infantry, then a new regiment in the regular army. From the first occupation of Nashville, Tennessee, he was chief Ordnance officer of that depot, amt supplied General Sher man with all theamiiKiultlon he spent upon Atlanta.

The same D true of Mr. Raymond of the Times, Mr. Bryant of the Post, and others connected with the metropolitan press. Mr. Ciiask has always been more Radical in name than fact; and the recent onslaught-* upon him by the leader* of the Radical party, Ids position on the Impeachment issue, and Ids subsequent virtual withdrawal from the ranks of the Republican party, are Indica tive of his private political sentiments.

A Rbw ix Auuksta.—Tlio Augusta pa pers, of yesterday, contain tlio particular* of a disturbance which occurred in that city on the la«t day of the election, and which well nigh resulted in a hioody riot: After the polls closed.

This produced considerable excitement and called forth from the white men present shouts not very complimenta ry to the Military Mayor.

A Vlltainoua Outrage—Judge L. D. Bunrcll was reuiovcil from office as Man- gar, ignorant ami | n toextreme*. The Republican party lias become oneof extreme, narrow proscriptive measures; so much so that the more patri otic and able men of the organization are abandoning it. The Democratic party North Ini*, by force of circumstances, been driven to the opposite extreme; and the Cop|«erln*nd and IVmilcton wing occupies, to all intent* and purposes, the same ground occupied by Mr. Vallaxpioiiam In lSGI.

The election here lias passed off quietly w ithout much lighting or quarreling, hut a heap of work and intrigue. The polls are open at two places in the county— Kingston and t’artersvllb*—and we think when the vote is coiiiiDhI out. tlio result will be very gratifying to tlio Democracy. C'artentitle Krpre»».£Uh. The election In till* county Is progress ing as we go to press but w Itli what result we have no accurate Information, a* the managers, under General Meade's orders, are not allowed to count votes until the close of Hie noils at 0 o’clock on tbe last dav of tite election—tills evening. From Information, however, derived Iroui per sona who have watched the polls very cloeely since they opened, wo think It may be safely sahl that it will lie found, when the votes are all counted tills evening, that Whitfield has gone the entire Conservative ticket by at least one hundred and fifty , majority* Gordon will run ahead of the j ticket—nU majority, wc doubt not, will be I at least two hundred and fifty. We are gratified to state that the election, i thus Ikr* has passed off very quietly. I Xortk (Go.) lit publican, 24 th. that the founder of their party—the Devil—did to deceive our first parents—by lying. Having no unfavorable facts to make capital out of, they resort to making capital lie*; and so well do they succeed, that we cannot but think they are follow ing the natural Instincts ol their nature*. But we think mat they and the devil will not succeed this time. We believe a ma jority of the Northern people arc tlio friends of peace and union, and will not be deceived Into the support of a party of scoundrels who would destroy every ves tige of the old government and establish upon lu ruins a despotism with themselves at IU bead. The Radical )*pen may rave and bowl over tlio ill success of their schemes of treason, for their power is bro ken, and their throne will be trampled to dust by the people next November. OT General Ashley, of Ohio, who got bla title at General by being general agent for Brandreth*s Pills, and who declared during the canvass, In 1806, that “he would not give slumber to his eyelids until Mr. Johnson was Impeached," Is evidently making up for lost time In a huge nap, as we hear nothing of hint now, and It can not be possible that so Important a crea ture as himself could be awake, and not be noctead In the public prints.

Richmond, April 21.—Schofield issued an order this morning that Congress hav ing mode no apprepriatlon to defray the election In Virginia, for the ratification or rejection of the Constitution, the election will not take place June 22d, unless Con gress should make an appropriation before that time. It the election docs not take place on tliut day, Congress will doubtless substitute a later day, of which due notice will be given.

Schofield, Major General U» S. A.* the present Commander of the First Military Distriet. General Schofield Is regarded by those who know him as a Conservative, and If court rim'd would probably act In harmony with the President. But the Senate regards Mr. Stanton as the Secretary of War, and It Is not proba ble that hotly would throw away so pliant a tool us lie k for one they could not con trol. Ami more than this. It would look a |ioor exchange to give the Commission of k Major-General for a ten months lease upon a Cabinet office. We think the Pres ident la wasting time In bidding for the Military Chieftains of Jhe country.
